More in Support


Whitechapel Gallery is a touchstone for contemporary art internationally and plays a central role in London’s cultural landscape.

For over 100 years we have presented the best modern and contemporary art to a growing international audience, enriching the lives of our visitors and creating a global platform for the art and artists of our times.

Our programme of exhibitions, commissions, projects, film screenings, talks and events is unrivalled in its breadth, ambition and accessibility. Yet, as a public art gallery and registered charity, we rely on the philanthropy of our family of donors to achieve our aims.

Generous charitable support from our Members and Patrons, exhibition donors, charitable trusts and corporate partners accounts for almost half of our annual income.  Your support, at any level, is extremely valuable to us and can make a vital contribution to the Whitechapel Gallery in many different ways.
